D wanted to make silly faces at the camera, but I got him to smile a few times.
Took my kids to the beach yesterday, and brought along my BFF’s kids. They all had a grand old time in the 85 degree spring weather, though the water was deemed “freakin freezing” (this did not prevent them going in, of course).
Then it was off to Cub Scouts, where C gave a presentation on his collection of Middle Eastern money for his collecting belt loop, and then everyone raced toads and ate ice cream. I’m sure this was educational somehow, but the boys all loved it and the den leader got to get rid of a bunch of the toads that have invaded his pond (most of them escaped into the flower beds during the race).
That Man is home and decided he wanted to spend some of his per diem money on a treat for us. So he bought two iPad Minis for the two of us. I’m currently blogging from mine. It takes photos too. And there’s a Minecraft app, so the kids are happy. They have Minecraft on the computer already and are happily building elaborate homes and killing sheep (apparently shearing them is too much trouble).
We went up to Jamestown this week, to learn about Virginia history. The boys mostly wanted to see cannons and muskets, but they were really into the tall-masted ship replicas too.
